Comments about Jackson SLATXSD 3-7 Quilted Maple Top 7-String Electric Guitar:
I've been playing guitar for nearly 30 years. I've owned several guitars in this time frame, most of which have come and gone, leaving me with my trusty Ibanez RG550 from the early 90s as my primary instrument. I have owned Jacksons before and just have not been a fan of the narrower neck compared to the Ibanez Wizards on the original RG series. This 7-string has the wide width, narrow profile I've been accustomed to and it made it really easy to transition into 7-string playing. Having owned Jacksons before and having sold them within a few months due to dislike of feeling cramped on the fretboard, I was hesitant to order this sight unseen, unplayed. It was a winning gamble this time.
I truly didn't want the Floyd Rose option, but I took because the deal with coupons and special financing was too good to pass up - that said I have been impressed with the stability of the bridge on this 7-string, though still prefer the Ibanez version over any other type of Floyd Rose type of tremolo bridge.
This guitar has a great sound, part from the Seymour Duncan Blackouts (which I will be getting a set for my Ibanez soon) and the neck through body construction. I have found it can get some nice lows without being muddy and has nice harmonic response and good overall tone and sustain for some new type metal I've been getting into playing.
I would recommend this as a great first 7-string with Floyd Rose option to someone just getting into 7-string playing, someone as an intermediate gigging guitar or for the home studio artist. No, it's not made in the USA, hand made etc. but for the price the features are there, the sound is there and it is very versatile in may ways. About my only CON would be that the Duncans on this are VERY hot and sometimes it can be hard to dial in a well rounded crystally sounding clean as I've been able to on other guitars, and I firmly believe that's just due to the Duncans on this designed to play metal.
